It's free and it's close to Arselna metro on the way to Motherland monument. The statue of the little girl and the artwork before the exhibit were the highlights.

Visited the memorial on a cold and snowy Saturday with my traveling companion. I was unable to visit the museum, but my friend did the following day and said it was well worth the visit.
